The Recognition and Handling of Honeybee Specimens in Non-Linnean Taxonomy

Authors: E. J. DuPraw;

The Recognition and Handling of Honeybee Specimens in Non-Linnean Taxonomy

Abstract

SUMMARYThe author has previously published four non-Linnean classifications for honeybees, all based on 15 characters of the worker forewing. This paper reports an attempt to test the accuracy and usefulness of these classifications by inferring the geographical origin of completely unknown, disarticulated wings. Twenty samples, each containing 3–5 worker forewings representing various natural honeybee populations, were sent from Austria by Dr. F. Ruttner; the author attempted to recognize 18 of these wing samples, and 16 are considered to have been correctly identified. The principles used in recognizing and designating honeybee specimens in non-Linnean taxonomy are fully explained in the present paper, which includes two new discriminant diagrams.
